2017: A year in review

By Melanie Fatouros-Richardson on December 22, 2017

2017 was a special year at Bold. It's now been five years since launching our first app on Shopify and boy has a lot changed!  

Little milestones like that help us reflect on where we've come from, and where we're going. This

Bold #InnovateOrDie AKA Hack Days

By Jay Myers on February 14, 2017

At Bold, #InnovateOrDie is the motto by which we live. If we aren’t continually innovating, we are dying as a company. Every now and then we need to remind ourselves of this. And that’s what #InnovateOrDie days are all about. They are 2 day software development or project challenges, where each member of Bold teams up, chooses a project to work on, and develops it to at least a working demo within 48 hours. It serves to remind us of what we can do with any idea we come up with, and how fast we can get it done, if we really sit down and put our minds to it.
